Advice for Sunday services
Last updated: Wednesday 6 January
Before our eyes our nation has changed. It’s an extraordinary time and each of us will have our own response to it. Amidst the disruption and chaos we can hold onto one truth: “God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in times of trouble” (Psalm 46).
Although the current guidelines allow us to hold services of public worship, we have taken the decision that it would not be appropriate to do so given the prevalence of Covid-19 within our local community. We will continue to provide online Digital Church services which are live-streamed and then available to watch on demand. Some church buildings will also be open at advertised times for individual private prayer.
Even though we are putting measures in place to lessen the potential transmission of Covid-19 within our buildings, there is still a risk to health. Therefore, please be aware of the following advice when considering whether to go to a church building for private prayer:
In partnership with others in the local community, we are able to offer free food deliveries. If you would like to nominate a vulnerable neighbour to receive a free meal, or if you would like to volunteer to be a delivery driver please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
NB: this is not just for church members, but for anyone in need in our community.
We are grateful for your support and would ask you to pray for the four churches in our team, that we may grow in worship, prayer, fellowship and mission through this testing time.
